Watermelon Gazpacho

This fun twist on gazpacho comes from one of my favorite new cookbook finds, Juice Manifesto: More than 120 Flavor-Packed Juices, Smoothies and Healthful Meals for the Whole Family by Andrew Cooper (Chronicle Books, 2016). Andrew is the co-founder of the Juiceman line of juices, but you might recall him as the lawn-mowing heartthrob from the viral “Diet Coke guy” commercial. (I know I remember him from that .) His book is chockfull of healthy, easy recipes for juices, smoothies, snacks, and more that make you want to clean out your pantry and eat healthfully forever. About this recipe, he writes, “I love gazpacho – this is a bit of a different take on it, but it works really nicely. The ginger and chile give it a bit of a kick, but you can put in as little or as much as you like.” For what it’s worth, I add even more; I love how the spice plays off the sweetness of the watermelon and acidity of the lime.
